    Pros

    Good Company to work with
    Free CAB facility for all employees
    In-hand salary is more as compared to other MNCs
    Less deductions

    Cons

    Basic Pay is less due to which PF will become very low
    Since Basic is very low, so during leaving company your leave balance will be paid in terms of basic salary/day
    Increment is not always good/satisfying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please become more focused on employee friendliness and avoid much politics, give priority to work rather than other unnecessary stuffs.
